    Armagewolf

    Hi all,

    I searched the forums for the build i'm planing, with no success....
    Two reasons for that: It sucks (no way, i'm still gonna try :)), or its a new build.

    To sum up the id is:
    "Wereworlf using armaggedon"
    I saw grizzlydeons outthere, but no "weregedons"

    So, i'm planing something like this:

    Elementals
    8 Prereq
    20 Volcano
    20 armag

    Shapeshifting
    Fury 5
    Prereq 4 (includes lyc)

    Summon
    Grizzly 1
    OakSage 5
    Prereq 3

    Total 66
    Points left will then be distributed in OS, Fury, why not hunger if needed.

    I thought of this build while founding the axe "Stormrider".
    I've always played caster characters.... but wanted to use this axe.
    I felft like: You have to fight quick to benefit from the elemental damages and "% effects" (reason why i chose fury, then wolf).
    Still, you like to cast things...... (I already have a wind druid, thatn I go for armag)

    I also have jalal's helm to help me out there. The rest of equipment will depend.... (lavagoult gloves, +1 and resists amu, manaheal ring and a resist one, moser or stormchaser as a shield)

    Well well, I'm talking but I forgot questions :)

    What stats am I supposed to pump (as I told you, I never made a fighter).

    I was thinking of
    str for equipment.
    dex around 100 ?
    Vit the rest
    eneg base.

    Any thoughts guys ?
    Any warning like: you never gonna make it.

    Thx for your comments

    stormrider has a couple problems, not the greatest damage or speed, being only exceptional and without ias

    it does have low requirements, but even with shael it will top at 7frame fury if I am not mistaken, meaning, your fury would go 12/7/7/7/7 at 40frames taking 1.6 seconds to complete one fury, which is not terribly fast by werewolf standards, but managable if it really has to be

    stormrider dmg is underwhelming also, even upgrading it, if this is ladder, will still accomplish little, but, the stormrider could be servicable if it needs to be, I would just look to replace it down the road

    This might be good, but I would suggest getting Crushing Blow instead to make use of the fury- If you really want to go the elemental route a BStar or the Famine runeword would be better. -Isn't it Atma's Wail that has %chance to cast Amp Damge?

    atma's scarab amulet, famine is a good one to consider-but pricey, as is Baranar's, or you could go IK and get elemental set bonuses

    Famine would in fact be one of my best option, but I don't have Ohm & Jah.
    I Lost Branar in my old 1.09 account...... so I can't use it anymore :-(

    For the crushing blow advice, I have "Gore Rider" boots (30% Faster Run/Walk, 10% Chance Of Open Wounds, 15% Chance Of Crushing Blow, 15% Deadly Strike).... I will follow your advice by using them.

    I Still have a main question..... for stats.
    I did pump Str to 101 (for storm, and I may use skuller armor in the long run, not that a waste....)
    Eneg is still "base"
    Vit will be maxed

    Dex...... I really don't know what to put in here.....

    What is the formulla I should use to know the dex i'm supposed to put in (block rate / AR) ?

    Thx again.

    I almost forgot....
    I also have "Cranebeak" axe, that would really help the Framerate (base speed 10, 40% IAS).

    Is this a good option ?

    I'm doing a FC/armageddon for pvp. Should work well.

    10k Fireclaws at 4fps+6k armageddon :D

    he should be done sometime this weekend.

    i think FC fits better with armageddon than fure does as FC and armageddon have the same synergys.

    Also, with good gear i should also be able to put almost all my stat points in vit for high life. I may need to put 20 points in dex for max block, but thats all really.

    I didn't go for the FC path, as I thought it won't help with Fire Immunes....
    That sounds interesting for PvP though
